In the 1980s a sequel to this film, tentatively titled "Laserblast 2" was announced by Charles Band Productions. Through the years, the film was variously described as in development and/or partially or fully completed. In the early nineties, an ad appeared in Variety magazine offering full sale of the rights to the film, but it is unclear if they were purchased. The film, if indeed completed, has never been seen.

Laserblast occupies the absolute bottom rung of film. There is absolutely nothing to like, and I do mean Nothing. To call the acting sub-par would be a massive understatement and the plot would have been much stronger if it had been held together with shoestrings and chewing gum. I would never choose to watch this film for any reason if it wasn't being lampooned by MST3K. The MST3K version is absolutely hysterical though, so at least this poorly thought-out disaster of a film served some higher purpose. The best parts are where you can actually see members of the film crew and cameras, so much for editing I guess. This movie came out the year I was born and if I were the superstitious type I would consider it a bad omen. If you are given the choice between torture and seeing this film I would strongly recommend you at least consider the torture, the film is really that bad.
